It's important to give some thought to how you'll spend your time away. Regardless of the reason for your leave, you can make this time worthwhile. You may want to take courses to improve your academic standing; find a job, internship, or volunteer opportunity; and/or seek assistance in maintaining your health and well-being. If you are a student who receives financial aid, you should also connect with a Financial Aid officer. There is no single right way to spend your leave, as you'll hear from the student voices on this site. And don't forget that while you are away, you will still have your email account and access to much of the virtual Princeton community.
